Blixa Bargeld – Europe Crosswise: A Litany

Out of stock



“I am simply a traveling explorer conducting research, without a commission, specialty, or expertise.”

In this semi-fictional account, Blixa Bargeld recounts life on tour in 2008 with Einst├╝rzende Neubauten – from Lisbon to Moscow, Oslo to Naples, criss-crossing Europe. Along the way we encounter mind numbing routines, interesting restaurants (good and bad), colorful museums, rocky bus rides, mundane hotels, odd characters and old friends – they’re all there. Along with the structure holding it all together, namely, a recurring setlist that is invoked as a litany. In the end the book proves to be a declaration of love for Europe, and in the current dark times we are presently living through, more immediate than ever.
